Welcome to the Party!

Enchanté! Welcome to Champagne at Shannon’s  – I am so happy you are here.

Shannon Silver // champagne at shannons

By ways of introduction, my name is Shannon Silver.  I am a certified sommelier, and passionate about food, beverage, entertaining, and event planning. I currently live in San Francisco, California, and work with events in the financial services industry. I started this blog as a creative outlet and to stay involved with the food and wine industry.

What you can expect from Champagne at Shannon’s:

fleur16   Easy Recipes: Everything will be scaled down to two, or will be in ratios, rather than exact amounts. Two is the perfect number, because it is easy to divide or double, depending on the need. I like cooking to ratios, because it offers flexibility in quantities, and can make scaling up or down a cinch! Since I hate counting calories, I prefer using whole/”real” foods, so you can have delicious dinners for two {or 1, or 4, or 6… whatevs} without worrying about counting calories.

fleur16   Entertaining for Two: Not only will I provide recipes for two, but also will give some fun ideas for date-night. My boyfriend and I work full-time in demanding industries, so we try to keep date night special to us.

fleur16   Lifestyle: Within the past five years, I have gotten pretty holistic with my living, and is something I am constantly asked about. Champagne at Shannon’s is the perfect outlet for me to share products I am obsessing over, lifestyle tips that work for me, and my own health and beauty tips.

fleur16   Event Planning: I have been fortunate to plan some really neat events, so I will post my tips, events, table settings, and all things entertaining here.

fleur16   Travel: You can expect travel guides, tips, and places I recommend. I have some exciting upcoming travels coming up, so I look forward to documenting them here. Also, it is the perfect place to get recommendations, and must-sees.

fleur16   Wine/Spirits: Expect to see fun recommendations, spirit spotlights, and easy {dare I say, skinny} recipes. I am a big fan of letting the spirit shine on its own, rather than being covered up with sugar, and juices, so luckily that keeps things on the lower end of the calorie range.

fleur16   #WCW: This section is one I am probably the most excited for! If you are not familiar with the hashtag trending weekly on Instagram, it stands for Woman Crush Wednesday. Monthly {on a Wednesday of course} I will spotlight other female bloggers/small business owners. There are so many talented women out there with really neat businesses that I want to share with all of my readers. Do you have a blog or business that I need to check out? I’d love to hear from you at shannon@essellesse.com

fleur16   Power Couples: This is another series I am stoked for. I will be interviewing various couples, individually, and share how they balance work/life/relationship, get a sneak peek on date nights, traditions as a couple, and get to know the individual in the couple. I define a power couple as two individuals in a relationship, simple as that. Two people with their own life 100%, so in the relationship, they are 200%. Are you a part of a power duo or are there any I should spotlight? E-mail me at Shannon@essellesse.com

fleur16   Wait for it… Alcoholic Infused Desserts: Yes, you read that correctly. This may sound weird, but ever since 2009, I became obsessed with the idea of creating alcohol infused desserts. This is the perfect platform for me to share my recipes with you to bring a fun way to really indulge.

Want to stay in the loop? Be sure to sign up for my newsletter! Don’t worry, I will not blow up your e-mail inbox, crazy ex-boyfriend style. You can expect a monthly newsletter of exciting updates, features, and what to look forward to at Champagne at Shannon’s.
